Each year, both Chrysalis Edmonton and Calgary host an Annual Achievement Awards ceremony (presented by Servus Credit Union in Edmonton) to recognize the contributions and accomplishments of many of the individuals accessing Chrysalis programs and Services, along with community volunteers, sites and partners who have helped make a difference in the lives of those whom we serve.

We go all out for this event to ensure our service individuals feel like they are heading to the Oscars when they arrive at the event. Held in a large ballroom, the Annual Achievement Awards are an event our individuals look forward to each year. In a room full of family and friends, our individuals get dressed up in their Sunday best for their certificates and awards and enjoy the party atmosphere.

Chrysalis staff members nominate service individuals who they feel should be recognized for their achievements throughout the year. Special awards are presented to nominees selected by the Annual Achievement Award Planning Committee.

The Annual Achievements Awards is always a very upbeat afternoon with a lot of smiles, some laughs and sometimes a few tears from those who receive recognition! The night is accompanied by a musical experience in Calgary and DJ’d party in Edmonton to celebrate the evening.
